    He needs to reach the airport with some extra time in hand.

    He needs to reach the airport with some extra time in hand so that he doesn't miss the flight. What is the proper way of saying this? Like if Tom has to catch the plane at 9 AM then he should reach airport at at least 8 AM.

    We don't really need 'extra'; otherwise, it's OK.

    You missed out an article again! This is surprising given that you remembered to use it in your opening sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
